Sushant Singh Rajput’s death by suicide is being investigated by the Mumbai Police and in a fresh update the CCTV footage of the actor’s residence has been taken into custody. “Police have taken in custody CCTV recordings of the building where Sushant Singh Rajput was staying. No CCTVs were installed at his house. Forensic report awaited: Abhishek Trimukhe DCP (Zone IX), Mumbai Police,” stated a post by ANI. Sushant Singh Rajput passed away at his residence in Bandra on June 14.
Yesterday, filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali was summoned by the Mumbai Police for questioning in the probe.
SLB had reportedly approached Sushant to work in his film ‘Goliyon Ki Raas Leela - Ram Leela’. However the collaboration did not work out as Sushant was reportedly in a contract with another production house. "The statement of Bhansali centered around his (Bhansali's) conversation with Rajput after the film/s fell through because of the earlier contractual conditions," an officer privy to the probe had informed Mumbai Mirror.
Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s questioning went on for nearly two hours at the Bandra police station.
A totally of 29 people have been questioned in this ongoing probe – this includes Sushant Singh Rajput’s friends – Rhea Chakraborty, Mahesh Shetty and Sandip SSingh, family members, domestic helps, director Mukesh Chhabra, his co-actor Sanjana Sanghi and his manager too. Home Minister Anil Deshmukh had urged for an investigation in Sushant’s demise, stating that the ‘professional rivalry’ angle should also be probed. Filmmaker Shekhar Kapur will reportedly be called in soon to record his statement. Sushant Singh Rajput and Shekhar Kapur were to work together on ‘Paani’, but the film never went on floors.
